Dr Teh’s research on concomitant intensity modulated boost during whole breast hypo-fractionated radiotherapy was published in the Journal of the European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ESTRO). More recently, Dr Teh has presented and published on prostate brachytherapy and the use of SpaceOAR™ in prostate radiotherapy.
Dr Teh’s research has been presented at the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO), Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand (USANZ), Royal Australia and New Zealand College of Radiology (RANZCR) and University of Toronto radiation oncology scientific meetings.
A member of Trans-Tasman Radiation Oncology Group (TROG) and Australia and New Zealand Urogenital and Prostate Cancer (ANZUP) clinical trials group, Dr Teh is site-principal-investigator of international trials on post-prostatectomy radiotherapy (RAVES) and the use of adjuvant systemic/ hormone therapy with prostate radiotherapy (ENZARAD).
